I would love to find other pop stars who would be willing to tour with our orchestra. One of the benefits of James Taylor was that he had orchestrations. Many stars do not. My wish list would be exceedingly long, and at the top of it would be Kenny G and Carly Simon. Of course, the cost of some of these artists might be prohibitive.Marvin Hamlisch
"Marvin Frederick Hamlisch" was an American composer and conducting/conductor. He is one of only twelve people to win an Emmy Award/Emmy, Grammy Award/Grammy, Academy Award/Oscar, and Tony Award/Tony (also known as an EGOT). He is one of ten people to win three or more Oscars in one night and the only one other than a director or screenwriter to do so. He is one of only two people to have won those four prizes and a Pulitzer Prize (Richard Rodgers is the other). Hamlisch also won two Golden Globe Award/Golden Globes.If you enjoy these quotes, be sure to check out other famous composers! More Marvin Hamlisch on Wikipedia.
I realized that as I was getting older, I had to prioritize what I really wanted to do in the world of music. I concluded that I wanted to use my time to write shows for Broadway. Since I already have a very extensive conducting career that takes me away from New York for most weekends, I decided that I would not pursue film scores any more.Marvin Hamlisch
